Avoid their freshers week bands, it's just a waste of time. Its alot easier to just go to the events that you want and just chill in the communal lounges and actually get to know people

Moving into my accommodation was very easy and helpful. I have meet lots of new friends that are fabulous some are doing the same course as me. Freshers week in Manchester was really fun with lots of different events happening in the city centre. Some tips for new students would be make sure you have all your friends with you on freshers and have s meeting place if you all get lost. Pack extra money for taxis or get the Uber app to get you home also eat before you go out so you don't get drunk straight away.

My only problem with freshers week was the price of the events which were on over the city, most events were over £10 to get in and then drinks. Move it experience was simple and easy, and we got information about our surrounding areas. I met people through being in Facebook groups for the university I was going to and the halls. This would be my biggest tip to get in these as this is how you meet people prior to starting. Another way to meet new people is to get involved in everything that is going on both at your university and all over the city.

Gave out a lot of free stuff such as iced coffes. The event was a bit small as there was not many booths - especially when compared to Manchester Met.

When I moved into university halls I had a massive car full of things, I made my flat homely by having a theme / colour scheme and I focused most on my bedding as that's important to me. Freshers week was full of lots of drinking and socialising with many people. I had the best time and met loads of lovely people. The events were great and an easy way to meet people who live around you. However I didn't enjoy the hangovers the following mornings!! A useful tip for freshers week is if you share a bathroom, make sure you have a sick bucket incase you've drank too much. This way you're not disrupting the rest of your flat mates.‚

I Loved this year's freshers week. My friends and I didn't get a wristband so we literally just listened out for what sounded like it would bang and went to those events. We managed to go out every single night. It was so live!! Obviously it will cost you more in the long run but with wrist band events only 2 or 3 of them bang so you'll probably run out of psyche mid-week. I would know, I'm in my third year.

The people seem great and welcoming, just be confident and be yourself, fit in with the right people and stay focused in your studies

The university made it as simple as possible moving in, with plenty of staff available to assist getting signed up, registered, and settled into accommodation. Where possible try and pack less when moving in. Try and survive on minimal personal belongings as don’t forget... you’ll be moving out before you know it. If you’re not a fan of the kerfuffle of finding a house to stay in over the summer, or have plans to go home anyway, try splitting the cost of a personal self storage unit with a friend in a similar situation. You’ll save heaps over the summer. (I got my stuff securely stored for only 100 pounds for the whole summer holiday, with delivery included to my next house. Divided by 2 that’s a no brainer.

A long week of not much happening; which was followed by another week of not much, but this time in lectures. However, two good fairs with looks of freebies.

There was not enough knowledge given on where the best places to go are. Although the package provided was good there was not one single night I didn’t want to leave early More acts, more tickets (they sold out quick loads of freshers couldn’t get them) and more to do around the uni

Freshers week had a wide range of events on for students and catered to everyone’s tastes, there were multiple events on every night for the full week ! I attended the birdcage glow party which I thought was great fun , the dress code was relaxed and everyone had glow sticks and glow paint the atmosphere was amazing !
